OCEAN ISLE BEACH — Ocean Isle Beach officials made the N.C. 179 roundabout official by agreeing to put $250,000 in town funds into the project.
Commissioners voted 4-1 to approve moving forward and using town funds, if necessary, to cover the town costs.
“I’m going to work diligently to raise some of that money,” Mayor Debbie Smith said of searching for grants to cover the $250,000 the board agreed to pay for the project.
Commissioner D.B. Grantham was the lone board member to vote against the roundabout.
